Often when working in 5.1 surround you are presented with 6 mono L, R, SL,SR, C, LFE tracks to use. In the current and previous versions of Premiere, although there is an easy way to route the 5 main tracks, there is not a easy way to route the LFE. There are a few ways to do this but the technique I prefer is as follows:

Create a sequence with 7 mono tracks and a 5.1 master track

Add the mono files as follows:

Then set up the track mixer like this. Keep all the faders at zero

Note the joystick panning and the Centre and LFE send controls. Use the Invert audio effect in track 7.

5-1 Export.PNG

Then export the sequence as a 'Polywav' 5.1 file. This can then be used in Premiere as a single audio track.

If you want to change any of the levels of the individual tracks add the 'volume' effect to the new 5.1 wav file.

Hope this might be of some use.

Wow, thank you. I still can't believe with all the updates they make, there still is no way to just route LFE to LFE. Come on Adobe.

Thanks for this fix. Is there a way to get Adobe to fix this issue. Currently I use Nuendo to create a Multichannel WAV which Premiere Pro works with fine. I just find it crazy that with all the years passing by that they can't easily make a track that can be routed only to the LFE. 5.1 audio has been around for years.
